It's been a week since I started this blog, and I'm increasingly keen on the idea. I've been keeping written journals for the past 5 years or so, and have put my 3 travel journals online at GoBackpacking.com. I continue to customize this site, and I'm sure I'll find new ways to tweak the look, feel and functionality until I leave. Today's updates include site stats (below right) and breadcrumb navigation (top left).
The US Men's National soccer team beat Denmark today, 3-1, in the first international match since the first round defeat in the 06 World Cup. I keep remembering that I'll likely be in the vicinity of China for the 08 Olympics. Soccer would be tops on my list of events, especially if I could score tickets to a US match.
I'll get to posting a pic of myself, however for now, I snapped this birdie outside my apartment window this afternoon. It reminded me of Three Little Birds by Bob Marley, which is my go-to stress relieving song. Bob Marley's Legend has been in my car's CD changer for the past 2 years straight.
I'll begin posting more about myself as well, given we've got a lot of time to shoot the breeze before the adventure begins! Post a comment with any questions or suggestions.
